Mt. Anderson


ĎSeems Iíve surely made a mountain
Out of the molehills in my life.
Too many shortcuts to be countiní
Leading to this valley of strife.

The house I built my life upon
Buried, behind me in the sand.
Do I challenge the horizon?
Or let the mountainís merit stand.

I always thought I had a good heart,
But stopping now to take the measure;
Focus on heaven never played part
ĎGainst my mountain of earthly treasure.

Now I cry out to be forgiven,
The past clinging to me like a wraith.
I take my stand in shadow, riven,
With but a mustard seed of faith.

The miracle, mine for believing,
A mountain removed to the sea.
The gift Iím forever receiving,
A life God predestined for me.

Now angels in heaven rejoice
As a lost sinnerís saved by grace,
And the horizon confirms my choice
With the Sonís warmth on my face.

I always thought I had a good heart,

I've read this beautiful testimony several times and keep coming back to this line. How differently we see things once we change our hearts from good to God's!

This is truly a blessing to read!

So beautiful and so deeply poignant, dear Michael.

Love,
Margherita
